Ingrid Pollard at Turner Contemporary

There is a new Ingrid Pollard retrospective exhibition opening this week at the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate.

Guyanese-born British artist and photographer Ingrid Pollard’s Turner Prize-nominated exhibition Carbon Slowly Turning will be presented at the gallery this summer (9 July – 25 September 2022). Created In partnership with MK Gallery, Milton Keynes, this is the first exhibition to fully explore Pollard’s experimental works, from the 1980’s to the present day.

The exhibition, which will span Turner Contemporary’s first-floor galleries, is Pollard’s first major survey and examines her substantial contribution to British art. 

Her work explores how images and identity are constructed, especially in representations of history and the landscape, working with film, photography, installation and sound. Neither a retrospective nor a chronological display, this exhibition interrogates Britishness, race and sexuality.

Turner Contemporary will exhibit an exclusive series of black and white photographs titled ‘Bursting Stone’ and the prints commissioned and shown at Glasgow Women’s Library of Lesbian marches.

At the Turner Contemporary in Margate.

'Ingrid Pollard's work slows down our looking to create space to consider alternative formations of history and landscape. Across four decades she has re-scripted Britishness, looking back in order that we might move forward differently. This is a profound and timely exploration of this vital British artist.'
- Maria Balshaw, Director, Tate
